I am a student at Mansfield University in the nursing program. I was curious what type of diploma programs are available in Canada. How long are they typically? Are they specialized? Thank you for sharing any information!!!!

Here in Ontario they're getting rid of the diploma program for RN's.... now it's all BScN. It can be done through university or through a college affiliated with a university. Here at McMaster, we've got Mohawk and Conestoga Colleges with us. Same program, same tuition, same degree, different sites.
The BScN program is 4 years. Regarding specialized I'm not exactly sure what you mean. We get some say over our clinical placements in level 3, and in level 4 we get to pick them, so I guess you can sorta pick an area to focus in on.....
